Platform Control Panel

By Christine Morales

One of the decisions that must be made and yet still trips up many people along the way is which web hosting platform you want your server to be on. Two of the most popular choices are Linux and Windows web servers.

- The control panel and FTP commands, you will find these on both Windows and Linux servers, although you will discover that some commands will differ between the two because certain FTP programs were designed primarily for Windows or Linux. This could be the reason for some error messages you may encounter when attempting to run certain FTP commands on each server.

* Support – contrasted with Windows, Linux does have less support available for parts of their technology, and so this can be costly and frustrating from time to time. Linux is running on much specific technologies as compared to Windows which is much more generic.

Reliability and Security Functions- Linux, which is generally used by software developers and those that engineer systems, often proves to be more reliable and to have some higher tech security features. Windows is more often used in the home or for the home office and is not quite as reliable or secure. Being ‘hacked’ on Windows is more likely because of its popularity and commonality, quite simply there are more people using it and therefore more people looking for flaws with it.

-Performance- Linux is generally thought to be a slightly better performing system primarily due to the manner in which the Linux server is packaged. With Linux things are usually designed to fulfill specific tasks. As opposed to these specific designs, Windows instead offers a more general package to all of their customers.

In regards to conversion, if you plan on changing your operating system and you have a Linux server, it is very simple to convert your website from Linux hosting to a Windows operating system hosting. On the contrary, it is indeed a nightmare for anyone who wished to convert their website from Windows hosting to Linux hosting.
